Following the death of his father in 1921, he emigrated to Ottawa in Canada with his mother. Upon arriving in Ottawa, Henri Masson worked in an engravers workshop and took courses at the Ottawa Art Association and at the Ottawa Art Club. He exhibited his work for the first time in 1933 as part of a group exhibition, displaying his watercolors, pastels and drawings.

In 1945 he was elected President of the Conference of Canadian Artists in Ottawa. It was only in 1945 that Henri Masson decided to finally give up his career as an engraver for prior to this, despite all of his success with his paintings, he was determined to have a steady income to support his family and children. Masson went onto become a teacher at Queens University and he later taught at the Banff School of Fine Arts. In 1955 he received an honorary doctorate from Assumption College in Windsor, Ontario. Masson was primarily a landscape painter. He painted nature, trees, small villages, the sea, boats, lighthouses and boats.
